EPP Training (Friday afternoon)
This room is a smaller version of the Main Power Plant that we have on station. Right now, under normal circumstances, the station and everything around it is fed power, heat, computer access by the Main Power Plant. If an event occurs that completely shuts down the Main Power Plant, we are going to need to get down to the Emergency Power Plant, get the generators warmed up and running, so we can maintain life support systems.
It was definitely a coordinated effort…the engineers could get a generator turned on and warming up, and then it was the electrician’s turn to make sure that the right breakers were activated.
There was another step in the process, too. Another technician had to make sure that the glycol, our heat exchange system, was flowing the right way, and actually heating/cooling the right areas.
It was a great process to go through, and get familiar with what would need to happen during such an event!
